Oracle OpenWorld 2011, San Francisco, CA, October 4, 2011 – TomTom today announces the availability of TomTom Geospatial for Oracle, an out-of-the box data solution for geocoding, routing and display. Oracle customers can now easily integrate TomTom map and routing data into existing or new business applications and IT infrastructure powered by Oracle Database 11g, saving them time and money.
TomTom enables rich analysis and functionality through Geospatial for Oracle. Customers in the insurance industry might use the Oracle Spatial geocoding features to assess risk in flood zones, while customers in finance can leverage them to track client purchasing habits and determine new ATM locations. The utilities industry can more effectively manage mobile workforce by geocoding addresses, planning efficient routes and visualising the location of their assets. Oracle Spatial is an option to Oracle Database 11g.
"With the launch of Geospatial for Oracle, TomTom fuels Oracle applications with its accurate and fresh data," said Maarten van Gool, Managing Director TomTom Licensing.
